Talks between Netanyahu & US Secretary of State John Kerry might lead to breakthrough:Israeli source.

JERUSALEM, June 29 - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry embarked on their third meeting in 48 hours on Saturday evening amid intense talks' marathon in Israel and Jordan.
A diplomatic source in Jerusalem told  prior to the meeting that the meeting "might lead to a breakthrough and the resumption of the peace talks."

"Kerry is set to deliver a statement tomorrow and it's hard to believe that he would have postponed the planned press conference (supposed to take place in Jordan on Saturday noon) if he didn't expect to deliver good news at the end of his visit," the source added.

Kerry, who has been on a back and forth shuttle of talks with Israeli leaders in Jerusalem and Palestinian leaders in Amman, Jordan in the past 48 hours, postponed a planned trip to the United Arab Emirates, which was supposed to start on Saturday night.

This is Kerry's fifth visit in the region since he took office as secretary of state, in a continuing effort to get both parties back to the negotiations table. Peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians broke down in 2010 over Israel's growing construction in the West Bank and east Jerusalem.

Kerry is supposedly pushing both sides to hold a diplomatic summit next week in Jordan, according to reports in both Israeli and Jordanian media.

A diplomatic source told the Walla! news website Saturday that Israel is willing to release prisoners on a gradual basis, and not to build in the settlements, but is reluctant to publicly declare it.

Despite the signs of a possible breakthrough, there have also been also reports to the contrary.

A Palestinian official told Xinhua reporters in Ramallah that there are "still no results that may actually bring to the renewal of the negotiations among both parties."

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
